WEDDING CAR HIRE
Making Dreams Come True
All the cars on our website are owned by Silver Star Wedding Cars and can be viewed by appointment. We are not a wedding car broker or agency, this means you will receive continuity of service from first booking with us through to your wedding day.

Civil Ceremony - Ceremony held at your reception venue
As weddings have changed and evolved over the years with the implementation of new laws. We often find ourselves providing our services for the bridal party or the groom’s party to the venue where the bride is staying and getting married. Although things have changed we often find that our bride and grooms still love many of the old traditions, this includes a vintage car from a bygone era.

This package can also be used for the grooms party if the bridal party are staying at the venue.
How many cars do I require?
The general requirement for a wedding is two cars for the bride and bridal party and possibly an additional car for the grooms party.
The Bridal Car - This will transport the bride and father of the bride (or person giving the bride away) to her ceremony, then after the ceremony the bride and groom on to the reception venue.
Attendants car - This will transport the mother of the bride, bridesmaids and pageboys.
One Car - If only one car is required for a wedding, generally we take the bridesmaids and mother of the bride in the first trip and then the bride and father of the bride in the second trip. (this would depend on the distance from the residence leaving from to the church / ceremony venue) and package.
We do not recommend using one vehicle for multiple trips to the ceremony, if one person in the prior trips is not ready on time this will have a knock on effect and subsequently make the bride late for her wedding. This will delay proceedings and causes a great deal of stress to the bride.
All our cars are fitted with seat belts and therefore child car seat laws must be adhered to at all times and therefore any children travelling under three years of age and under 15kg in weight must be seated in their own car seat provided and fitted on the day by the parent or guardian (to ensure correct fitting), under no circumstances whatsoever will any child under the age of three (under 15kg in weight) be permitted to travel on the booked day if a car seat is not available. Booster seats for children aged between 3 years of age (15kg and over in weight) and 12 years or under 135cm tall, (where fitting is possible) will be provided on the day. The laws regarding child car seats can be found at https://www.gov.uk/child-car-seats-the-rules . Please note: Booster seats are placed in the vehicles in regards to how many children are traveling on the agreed itinerary, if there are any additional children on the day they will be unable to travel if there is no booster seat available.

Our drinks service
Professionalism and high standards of service means everything to us at Silver Star Wedding Cars. We provide our happy couples with a wonderful drinks service with an added little touch...... shhh (a surprise for your wedding day) We do not hold a alcohol license and therefore do not supply alcoholic beverages. The reason for this is that we keep our cars at our residence and do not wish to hold a premises license on our property.
We have tirelessly searched (not just the UK) for an alternative and we have found the most wonderful non-alcoholic champagne produced by the world's leading champagne expert Richard Juhlin....... and it is terrific. This enables us to provide a wonderful champagne service without breaking the law.
We use just two products, Richard Juhlin or Carl Jung, both have a wonderful balance and taste.
